5:46pm
san francisco 93% right now at this present time compared to this time last year 43% of normal so we are substantially better than last year but nevertheless we have now fallen below 100% except in santa rosa at a healthy 103%. for your sunday, you might want to head to the coast where we have clear skies. 60 degrees, surface still on the rough side with rip current risk high. winds 15-mile-per-hour late day about 10. your sunday highs in california, 52 degrees in eureka, 50s in fresno, sacramento sunny dry skies 63 degrees. 35 and snowless in the greater lake tahoe area. temperatures tomorrow around our microclimates very similar to today if not even a couple of degrees warmer. mid-50s' beaches. upper 50s in san jose and concord, clayton and walnut creek. i'm going to walk you through
5:47pm
this day by day because what do you see? absolutely nothing. [ laughter ] >> it looks like by thursday, we will start to see the warmest day of the workweek temperature-wise. when i look at that 69 on thursday, that means almost 70. and all i have been wanting all year is one 70-degree reading. meanwhile, temperatures begin to go down after that valentine's day on thursday. but overnight tonight, again, i think every time i sit next to you, i have to tell you to cover your plants because another freezing night in many of our inland locations. >> but pretty daytime temperatures. thank you. good golf weather? >> looking at that forecast looked like pebble beach weather down there. we are going to hear from dennis o'donnell in just a moment. boy, of all people atop the pro- am leaderboard, it's not bill murray, but the leader is homegrown. come on back.

5:52pm
to 12-under for the tournament. he shot a 4-under 68. his ninth straight round in the 60s. snedeker is tied with alameda's own james hahn the former cal star playing spyglass hill today away from the network tv cameras. the man who gave up the game and sold women's shoes at nordstrom at one point fired a 6-under 66. i'm not kidding. i'm not making it up. finished his round without a single bogey. chris kirk is one back followed by patrick reed and richard lee. you know dennis o'donnell was there. >> reporter: yeah, thanks, vern and what a round 3 here at the at&t pro-am and tomorrow's final round will come down to the great pairing. james hahn the rookie out of cal against the up and coming superstar on the pga tour, brandt snedeker. >> i'm hitting the ball well not putting myself in too many positions that are in bad spots and i'm making my way well around the course. if i can keep putting the way i
5:53pm
have been, tomorrow will be fun. >> how much is in the back of your mind of trying to get into augusta? >> zero. i'm not even in next woke's tournament so for me a top 10 finish would be great. if you want to compare the north trust open to augusta we can but i would love to play another week out here on tour. >> you have improved your game now that you're a couple. >> yes, 100%. before i got married we would talk about what kind of flowers we needed for the wedding, table linen, i mean, how many married people are in this room? you know exactly what i'm talking about. and it's nonstop talk. >> let's go to 14. >> and coach harbaugh for a net eagle here. birdie net eagle! >> what would it mean for you to win this tournament? >> i don't know. i -- i -- if i win it i'll let you know. >> what will you do to get ready for the big day tomorrow, then, you know, for the big
5:54pm
charge? >> uhm, hopefully get the kids to sleep early and get a good night's sleep. >> reporter: don't forget jim harbaugh on the pro-am side the 49ers coach just three back of the lead in that category. he has made the cut. look for us on the "par 5" post- game show tomorrow. back to you. >> looks like sound bites for a 49er press conference -- yeah. meantime, wisconsin trying to get it done at the expense of number 3 michigan. that is to force overtime. when michigan couldn't get it to drop, the badgers hold in madison 65-62. nhl three periods not enough for the sharks and coyotes to finish business. season debut for sharks brent burns. goalie dual. anthony says no, torres on the breakaway. 21 saves for nemo.
5:55pm
counterpoint mike smith even better. sharks couldn't get anything by him, 33 saves for smith. smith has shut out the sharks four times in the last six games. to the shootout. couldn't get it through. but on the other hand, score on the empty and that's it. coyotes win 1-0 in the matinee game. the sharks now have lost four in a row. and look at this one in bakersfield last night. >> oh. >> this condor was supposed to be a prop for the national anthem and it gets away at the bakersfield condors hockey game. gets away, wreaks havoc, players, coaches, it just -- it just stopped play. trying to get away from this big fella. >> the bird is done! >> something you don't see every day at a hockey game. >> especially since the players are all suited up. it's not like the bird's going to get to them. but if that bird's coming out of me, i'd be ducking too. >> good night, folks, gone!
5:56pm
>> thank you much. a disturbing statistic released by police in berkeley. the amount of rapes -- the number of rapes reported in the city nearly doubled in one year. we look at what may be behind the big increase. that and more tonight at 6:30. and that's it for kpix 5 at 5:30. we'll see you back here in half an hour and then of course 10 and 11. until then our news updates are on cbssf.com. good night. captions by: caption colorado comments@captioncolorado.com ooh kfc. hey, you're supposed to wait for everybody. you know what, while we're waiting why don't we play a game of hide and seek? right now? yeah go hide. go on buddy. one, two...
